In past hour one or some of my hubs received almost 39 invalid clicks. Any idea how to remove one's Adsense ID from affiliate settings. Apparently there is no option to do so.
If you still want your AdSense ID removed from your account, I can do that. Just send an email to team(at)hubpages(dot)com. But I'd suggest pursuing it with Google, as I imagine you want to keep earning.
I just wanted to remove it for a little while when I noticed the clicks so removing it would not affect my earnings in big way.
Anyways, I don't want it removed now.
And thanks for replying Maddie. It is a great thing that HubPages care a lot for us hubbers.
Anyways, whoever you are clicking my ads. Keep doing it because it will only earn me some extra money and won't get me banned.
Edit: This is what I just realized as this clicking thing has been done a couple of times before also.
how evil of anyone to click adds in the hope of getting you banned! Are there really people who do stuff like that?
Apparently there are and looks like they are a member of this beautiful website.
How do you know you won't get banned? I had 16 clicks a few days ago and I've been worried sick - they came from Hubpages too!
If AdSense determines the clicks to be invalid (ie, the same person clicking over and over), they will be discounted and it won't earn you anything.
UM, think it would be wise for you to inform Google Adsense about this using the invalid clicks contact form - just to be on the safe side!!
Ok I have the link: https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … ks_contact
Yeah just contact Google if you notice this, they have enough ways to figure out if it was you or not!
The good thing about this is that if you report someone doing this, and the IP they have is logged matches another adsense account ID, they stand a good chance of being banned from the Adsense program.
There was a press release about this a few years back when the Adsense program suffered from people trying to take out the competition like someone is to you.
I hope nobody ever tries doing this to me, this why I avoid religious & politics forums where arguments kick off lol
I'd also suggest along with teh google channels to get google analytics, so that you can sort of track where people are coming from. Still it is a horible thing to have happen. I hope you'll be able to figure out which hub it happened with to better keep an eye on that one.

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...

Something just occured to me, not only are we writers here but we are ALSO CONSUMERS. I see nothing wrong with clicking on a fellow hubbers google ad if it's something we are interested in. I am getting the feeling that some people are afraid to do this for fear of reprisal for being click happy...

Why do some hubbers get kicked out of the google adsense program?In hub comments some people mention getting kicked out of adsense. They mention that it is because they don't get enough traffic or revenue through adsense. Is this true? What are reasons that you may get kicked off?

I am part of the HubPages ad program, so the amount I earn via adsense is lower than what I usually earn via HP ads. But yesterday, 19 April 2015, I noticed invalid click activity. On an average, my hubs get a total of 1 or 2 clicks max, but on the 19th of April the report showed 50 clicks and the...

There is currently a problem with the display of AdSense ads across HubPages. We are investigating the issue, and hope to have ads working again soon.
